It's partially fossilized.
There is still some enamel.
This thing is a honker.
I can't imagine what it could have come from except maybe a mammoth.

Just observing its size and how close the roots are it looks like a moose tooth to me. Im not an expert on the matter however.

Moose aren't known to hang out in Texas.

It would take 10000 years for that tooth to fossilize, so I wouldn't say this is not possible. I hope its a mammoth tooth if that's what you want it to be. Just need to rule out the obvious first.

I have a copy of a tooth from a mammoth found here in MI, and it won't fit in one hand, so I don't think that is what it is.

Did you find it?

On the ground, buried, where. Yeah, more info please.

Here's a more clear shot against college ruled paper to give a better sense of scale.
This is definitely not a cow or horse tooth.

100% Sure

It looks like a moose tooth but is too big for one I think, The size is dependant on the size of the hand holding it I suppose, so I do not know for sure..

Bight be a big buffalo tooth, there are some huge Buffalo types.

a bone can permineralize in as little as three hundred years under the right conditions.

Also sometimes pretty much never, i have some ice age fossils from Siberia that are almost like modern bone matter, so it depends entirely on location.

But it looks like an old buffalo/cow tooth, but maybe not a fossil.

Still a cool find.

..But then again, looks like some sediment has attached to it... So could be very old...

People generally put a coin or something of known size next to it.

There were giant bison in the Ice Age.
I would say there is a good chance that's what it is.

Fossilisation can be done in less than a hundred years

Bananas are the best for comparisons.

Oh? Maybe in 30 years my mother-in-law will fossilize then. Jk!!! She's actually pretty cool most of the time. All jokes aside, did you mean "preserved?" If not, can you link me? I would be astonished to learn that an animal fossilized in 100 years.

That looks like a ruminant herbivore tooth. The deer skeleton down by my road has teeth in the jaw that look
